What does this sentence mean:
1-There is one man to do the job.

a)There is one man capable of doing the job.
b)There is one man assigned to the job. (not more)
c)There is one man we can assign to the job. (not more)

b and c would be distinct from a in that they don't imply that the man has a particular capability.

To me it means:
b)There is one man assigned to the job. (not more)

For a), I'd need to be more explicit. :lol:
